Jalapeno salt is quite expensive when you can find it in the stores. So I invented my own recipe. You can find Jalapeno powder online at several online retailers. (use a search engine to find a supplier)

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour the salt into a blender or food processor. Process until fine, about 90 seconds. This must be done, or all of the salt will settle to the bottom of the shaker. Add the onion powder, garlic powder and jalapeno powder, and just pulse until mixed. Transfer to a shaker, and use it to spice up your favorite foods.

I use Himalayan Pink Fine Ground salt since bleached salt is not good for us. My husband is addicted to this one! He's a Jalapeno lover and puts them on just about everything he eats. Thanks and easy to boot - I'm just reusing the commercial Jalapeno shaker. btw - the commercial salt he uses also has MSG in it and this does not. I also use organic ground jalapeno. Read More

I made the recipe as written with the exception of reducing salt to two tablespoons. While it is certainly less time consuming to buy Jalapeno Powder if you are feeling particularly adventureous you can make your own if you have an abundance of peppers in your garden. Cut jalapenos in half or quarters and seed so they will dry faster and more evenly. Place in one layer on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 200 degrees 1-3 hours removing those that become dry so they don t burn. When cooled grind the peppers in a blender or food processor to make jalapeno powder. Store in an air-tight jar. (Wear gloves while handling peppers and be careful not to breathe in the jalapeno pepper dust when grinding). Read More

Today I found Jalapeno Pepper Salt at my small town grocers 2.99 for 7 ounces not too expensive at all. It was much better than what I had made using this recipe. Taste test and use the salt cautiously--even the smallest dab on the tip of a finger will get your FULL attention! And it will leave you wanting more. Read More
